NJC Trains Ebonyi Court Clerks, Secretaries for Efficiency

The Nigeria Judicial Commission (NJC) Abuja has organized an intensive training for court clerks and secretaries of judges in Ebonyi State for efficient service delivery.

The one-day training which involved clerks of Industrial, High, Customary, Federal and Appeal Courts among others became necessary following the quest for efficiency in filling three different forms used in the judiciary for reports to NJC.

Speaking during the training at the State Chief Judge’s court hall in Abakaliki, the Senior legal officer of Judges Performance Evaluation/Legal Department of Nigeria Judicial Commission, Mr. David Edoho stated that failure to fill accurately the forms, form 3, 4 and 5 which are the summary form, details of considered judgment form and details of pending matters form respectively could lead to some setbacks.

He enjoined the clerks to make good use of the training exercise because their inability to fill the forms correctly could lead to query and delay in elevation of judges in the said courts as well as prevention of appointment of more judges in the state.

Collaborating him, a staff of Data Section of Performance and Evaluation Department of the Commission, Mr. Yakubu Yahaya charged the participants to learn accurate filling format of the forms since by first quarter of 2020, the courts in Nigeria shall switch from manual information storage to electronic and the manual manuscript must be correct to guarantee accuracy of the electronic version.

Two of the participants, Mr Chukwuma Nwanga and Christian Nwonu thanked the Commission and the organizers for organizing the training and assured that the knowledge acquired from it shall improve their efficiency in the discharge of their duties.
